Fred I. Kent of American Bankers
Association Initiates Move to
Grapple With Problem.
Proposes European Economic Agree
ment!) Better World Business for
America In Return for Credits
ahd Partial Debt Cancellation.
Agreements by Kuropo .to make, In
oxchango for American financial help,
economic reforms that will Insuro
profitable lutornatlonal business for
tho Unitod Statos, Is the basis of a
plan for world rehabilitation worked
out by Frod I. Kent, chairman of the
Commnrco andMarino Commission of
tho Amorlcan Bankers Association.
Mr. Kent, as a delegate of the associa
tion, rocontly laid this plan before the
moetlng of the International Chamber
of Commorco at Borne. Ho pointed
out that tho Unitod States has no
right to attempt to dictate to Europe,
but that "whon it comes to loaning
our money wo havo a right to demand
satisfactory agreements beforo wo do
so." Hecontlnuod:
How America Can Come In
"As America has not the right to
demand thnt tho budgets of European
countrlos bo brought Into order, that
inflation bo stopped, and that mutual
undortsandlngs between tho Allies and
Germany bo developed, theso mattors
can be approached only on tho basis
of what America has that she can glvo
to Europo in exchange for agreements
which sho believes, It caHod' out,
would result In Increasing fbe. tradu
and commorco of tho United Sta'tes in
sufficient volumo to Jiiutify such ac
tion. "Prom tho standpoint of America
tho two questions of primary Impor
tance are, what xation will be neces
sary to meet tho requirements of our
government, and, second, what Incomo
will bo left to tho Amorlcan pcoplo
after tho payment of taxes. If tho
Alllod debts aro paid In full tho poo
plo of tho Unitod States will not havo
to meet Liberty bonds outstanding
against them through taxation. If tho
buying power of Europe is not restored
tho total national incomo of tho poo
plo of the United Statos will bo less,
than otherwise. cIf a portion of tho
Allied "debts can bo cancelled In ex
change for agreements which will
promptly place European countries on
a sound economic basis, tho restora
tion of the buying power of 'Europo
will be groatly accelerated, and tho
total national Incomo of-America will
be Increased."
An Improvement In foreign markets
for American products Is an essential
element In Mr. Kent's plan. He says:
"If, after deducting taxes necessary
to cover tho portion of tho Allied debts
cancelled, tho increase in the total
national Income of America Is greater
becau4 of the groator buying powor
of Europe brought about by means of
such cancellation, the people of tho
United States would be the richer.
There would seom no doubt but that
everyone would vote for cancellation
If It would assure greater national net
Income, with economic peace and
greater happiness for all peoples.
"The real question, therefore, Is
whether It would be possible to co
operate with European governments
along such lines that, In exchange for
cancellation of a portion of the Allied
Indebtedness to the United States,
they will glvo agreements aiming to
correct those things In their coun
tries at present economically unsound.
It Is not conceivable- how mere can
cellation could ba anything but harm
ful, unless accompanied by economic
readjustment all along the line.
"Further, agreements along the
lines mentioned could not be mado
effective unless tho whole reparations
tangle Is settled. At the same time,
thoreforo, that negotiations aro being
carried on in connection with any
poaatble trading of tho portion of the
Allied lndobtodness against agree
ments that will lay a bettor founda
tion for progress toward prosperity
In Europo, positive agreements must
be made between tho Allies and Ger
many In connection with reparations
that can and will bo lived up to.
A Loan to Germany
"A loan to Germany of sufficient
site to restore her economic situa
tion and enablo her to mako progress
toward paying reparations, nnd which
camo ahead of reparations, with a
stabilized Europo, would bo abso
lutely good, and It mado at tho re
quest and for tho bonoflt of the
European Allied countries, It could
undoubtedly bo placed In America.
"Tho constant friction which has
existed botwoon Gormany and tho
Allies bocauso of tho reparations
would be eliminated. Confidence
would bo restored to tho peoples of
Kuropo, whose badly shakon morale
Is probably tho greatest obstaclo In
tho way of accomplishment of thos.'
things necessary for stability.
"No forco exists in the Amorlcan
Government which would permit ne
gotiations such as thoso outlined Hut
tho Amorlcan Congress Is tho servant
of tho American peoplo when tho pen
plo chooso to mako It so. It Is con
colvablo that the effect of nn aroused
public opinion over corporation with
European nations to restore tho busl
noss of tho world would causo tho
members of tho new Amorlcan Con
gress bo to express tbomsolvcs us 10
warnfnt tho Administration in under
taking negotiations subject to later
ratification by Congress."
Department of Agriculture Plans
to Study Scientific Distribution
, Equally With Production.
Moro attention must bo given in tho
future to the economics of agricul
ture nnd to better marketing methods,
without lessoning efforts to promote
ofllclent production, It Is declared by
Secretary of Agrlculturo Wallace, In
a contribution to tho Hankor-Fnrmor,
tho bulletin of Un American Bankers
Association Agricultural Commission.
Under tho direction of D. H. Otis, tho
commission Is giving particular atten
tion to cooperative farm marketing.
"Whon land wbb advancing rapidly
In value tho farmer could afford to
take somo of his profit In the In
creased value of his land," says Sec
retary Wallace "Wo aro past tho
period of advancing land values, and,
if agrlculturo Is to bo maintained, It
must bo on a basis which will yield
a fair profit one year with another.
So I have been studying tho depart
ment with a view to strengthening
our economic work."
"We have gotten Into tho habit of
looking upon agricultural production
as a sacred obligation, and so it is in
ono sense, but it is no more sacred or
binding than tho obligation to market
crops without waste. If wo do not
do that wo might as well not produce
them," say3 Mr. Wallace.
He adds: "It 13 tho purposo of tho
Bureau of Agricultural Economics fo
Inquiro Into everything which affects
marketing and prlco, with tho thought
that we must servo tho agriculture of
the nation as thoroughly on tho eco
nomic side as we have served It In
tho past on tho productive side. . A,s
to working ourVay out of tho'deprop
Blon, tho ilrst responsibility rests
upon tho individual farmer. If ho s
to get help he must help himself, bpth
as an individual and b- Joining with
other Individuals In co-operativo ef
forts. Tho Government is undenokUvJ
gation to clear away any obstacle
which do not give to the 'farmers, in-,
divldually and collectively, a fait
chnnco to help themsolves. Tho farm
er Is entitled to exactly tho samp,
rights and tho samo opportunities
that aro enjoyed by other citizens.
Ito Is entitled to a squnro deal." ,.
"It ls-not,the obligation of tho Gov
onmprit, tp, give the farmer any prlvl
Ipcph nft 'elvpn to nthnrs:"'iMr . 'Wnt-
lage, .continues. ,"It I understand ;tlft
ralndsj of the farmers of -the United
States, they are' not ''asking for spe"?
clal privileges. Ah. hey. are dsliltig
Is that they may be' assured of'etfnal
opportunities, of open anil competi
tive markets, and the right to organ
ize and market their products col
lectively, and to have the same access
to tho nation's money pool as other
people have. Farmers can meet to
gether, pass resolutions, make speech
es, and go home feeling better for a
time; but this sort of thing alone
will not get them very far. The time
has come when tho farmers must
themselves organize agriculture In a
thoroughly businesslike way; adjust
their production to the needs of con
sumption; stabilize their products
and market them efficiently; study
conditions agriculturally and indus
trially which Influence the demand
tor and consumption of their crops;
get a better understanding of the ad
ministration of tho credit machinery;
and employ trained men to do for
them what they can not do for them
selves." That Is to say, In substance, that
agriculture must bo put on a par In
efflcloncy of method with other Big
It has been pointed out by the
United States Department of Agricul
ture that Insufficient business and
poor management aro tho outstand
ing reasons for the failure of many
farmers co-opurUIve association1).
Lack of capital, liberal extension of
credit and dUhonust management are
tho minor causes for tho failure of
243 farmers' buying and selling asso
ciations since 1913. At the same time
It wa3 loarnod that out of 70 co-operative
croamlcs, tholr average longth of
existence was a little over sevon and
one-half years.
Tho Stato Dank Division of tho
American Hankers Association Is now
compiling facts of successful co-operatives
of all kinds and In all parts of
tho country, with the Idea of buildlug
up a body of sound method and ex
perience to servo as a trustworthy
guide In tho further development of
tho co-operative farm markotlng

E. J. Hodman, representative of tho
Agricultural Commission of the Amer
ican Bankers Association for tho
Eighth Federal Reservo District,
Bays: "Every ono of tho more than
80,000 banks In tho United States
would mako moro money by helping
our six nnd one-half million farmers
to mako larger profits. Tho b.mks
and business interosts of tho entire
country cannot mako tho largest prof

.Mi. Robinson wa not leally arrested
nnd taken to the police station, hut he
had u hard time convincing :i Lincoln
police officer Wednesday afternoon that
the cir he hart paiked near Fifteenth
and O streets belonged to him, and thnr
lie was oneof Nebraska's -tate officials
The policeman liml spotted Robin
son's equipage as n stolen car, whil
the treasurer uas attending a plutuic
show nearby. When the owner cam
along, accompanied by his wife, and
started to get In. he was hailed by the
peace guardian, who demanded to
know what he was dolug with the
"Why this is my own cur," replied
Mr Robinson," and I'm going home
with it."
Where do you live?" Inquired the
vigilant man In uniform.
"715 South Thirtieth street," re
sponded the former
"Then I'd like to know what you're
doing with a Webster county number,"
was the policeman' comeback. lie
had No. 4J-2, the one on Boblnson's
machine, down on his book as a stolen
car, and he was rather insistent on the
treasurer driving with him to police
headquarters. The tatter's explanation
thnt he used to live at Red Cioud didn't
Sft'tn to make much of nn Impression.
At this point light began to dawn on
the mind of the bewildered custodian

ate bonded by a surety company for
one million dollars He re me in b red
that on Ai-iil 111 he had a our stolen
and had leported it to the police at
that time, with the number and de
scription The ear, a Ford sdau, was
not recovered, and when tito insurance
company paid the los he bought anoth
er one of tlie same kind and secuied 11
duplicate number tag for it.
All this was explained to the repre.
sentutive of .aw and Older. Mrs Itob
iu-oneortoboiated her husband's story.
The public guardian listened somewhat
doubtfully, but finally permitted the
state treasuier to drive away
Losing one machine by theft and
then being detained by the police on

been up against. Last Tuesday, his
extra tire and rim were stolen off. the

on the west' side of Capital square, at
about the same place from which the
first car disappeared seven weeks ago.

The Domestic Science Editor, writ
ing in The Farm Journal for June,
says that sour milk is n food of high
nutritive value and should never be
wasted. It has many uses in the pre
paration of foods." Considerable care
should be taken, however, in using
the r'ght amount of soda with sour
milk," explains The Farm Journal,
"for many persons use more than
is necessary. (Sour milk varies in
acidity; but in general from one
fourth ta one-half teaspoonful of
soda to one cupful of sour milk is a
good proportion."
Sour Cream P!e as given in The
Farm Journal is as follows: One
cupful of sour cream, ono cupful of
chopped raisins, one-half cupful of
sugar, two egg yolks, three table
spoonsfuls of flour, one teaspoonfull
each of cloves nnd cinnamon, and a
grating of nutmeg. Mix ingredients,
and cook until thick. Pour into baked
shells and cover with meringue made
of the whites of the eggs.
Sour Cwam Fudge made The Farm
Journal way, consists of two cupfuls
of brown sugar, one cupful of thin
sour cream, n pincli of salt, nnd two
ounces of chocolate, look until it
forms a soft hall, remove from fire,
allow to cool for a few minutes, add
one tcaspoonful of vanilla and beat
until it is creamy, then pour into a
jan nnd when set, cut into squares.
Sour Cream Cookies, mado by The
Farm Journal recipe require ono cup
ful of sugar, one-half cupful of but
ter, two eggs, one cupful of thick
sour cream, grated rind of one lemon,
one tcaspoonful of lemon extract,
ono half tcaspoonful of salt, three
cupful? of flour, ono tcaspoonful of
soda and two teaspoonfuls of baking
powder. The less flour used in roll
ing out those cook'es the moro moist
nnd tender they will be.
